Pimentel Guitars-Repair & Restoration Work

by Chad , 07/03/2012

The English term "craftsmanship" is not enough to describe the work done by this dynasty of guitar creators. The word "artesania" in the Castillian Spanish language is a much more fitting word. It connotes total mastery in one's craft combined with sheer artistry. When you first step into the shop of Pimentel Guitars, you know you're in a special world. The smells of the fine woods (some of us with super-schnozzes pick up on stuff like that); the quality of the instruments there; the in-house, dynastic craftsmen (artesanos) covered with a fine smattering of sawdust, transport you to another continent and another time. After not finding anyone in New Mexico sanctioned by Fender (who bought out the manufacturing rights to Guild Guitars) who would do both repair and refinishing workd, I summoned my nerve to approach the folks at Pimentel Guitars and ask them if they would work on my Guild D44. To my surprise and delight they agreed. The result is nothing short of sheer magical artistry. A nearly 40 year old instrument was transformed, Cinderella-like, to an instrument that looked as if it had been turned out by the defunct Guild Guitar Works, but sounded as mellow as every bit of its 40 years demanded. You will not be disappointed. Let the folks at Pimentel Guitars work their artesania on your fine old instrument if it needs it. I highly recommend them without any reservation. A very happy Guild D44 owner.
